Re: Washer doesn't spin.
Try the motor controller, if you bought the unit before 2006 the part should have a 5 year warranty, check your manual. If not in Warranty the part is 178.99 average. The motor controller is in the back right corner of the machine. If you have a ohm meter check the motor for correct ohm readings, easy to do. The tech sheet inside the machine ( left side behind kick panel in a brown envelope) has the test procedure and ohm readings.

Mine would only spin on the fast final cycle. Wouldn't spin during any of the agitate cycles. I replaced the motor, the speed controller and the main control unit. Nothing fixed the problem. Btw, the door lock worked properly. Had to replace the washer. Sorry, I know this doesn't help.
I see you are having trouble with your Frigidaire washer (GLTF2040ES0) not draining properly or spinning. Often, this is because your washer cannot dispose of the water and detergent solution. Does your washer make a humming noise? If so, the drainage hose/pump may be clogged and needs to be cleaned. If not, your washer may possibly be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair your appliance. Best regards - Z.
Hello - Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned, or you have another issue with the door lock assembly or the timer and control board not communicating correctly. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.
There's an auxiliary switch in the door lock.switch assembly that is activated at the end of the wash cycle for the machine to advance to the spin cycle. The machine will NEVER advance to the spin cycle unless the auxiliary switch is activated as a safety feature to prevent the door from opening during a high-speed spin cycle that may result in physical injury. The drum tumbles back and forth while the machine control checks the auxiliary if activated but since it's not, the control will not command the motor speed control to spin the drum at high speed. These symptoms may indicate a faulty door lock/switch assembly and may need replacement.

I have thata probelm a lot too. I have read that the controls don't sense that the door fully shut. You might try slamming it shut, jiggling the door, poking in the hole where the latch goes. When mine won;t spin, slamming and jiggling works.
You're problem is probably the door latch assembly. This is a common problem on Frigidaire front load washers. You can find the part at your local appliance parts suppliers. If the door latch assembly is faulty, the washer will run through all of its normal cycles, but will not spin. Hope this fixes the problem for you.
The first thing to check is if the door is locking. Put the unit into spin turn unit on let it go for about a minute then shut it off, try to open the door right after you shut it off if the door opens you need a door switch if not chances are you need a motor control board. Before replacing the board call for service they are expensive if it is a guess. good luck
